Focus Shifts To Bigger Goal As Heat Get Set To Host Knicks Tuesday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 3/31/2013 6:53:59 PM

The Miami Heat may not have set a new NBA record with their 27-game win streak. What they did do is lock up the top spot in the Eastern Conference and home court advantage. That will be important should the Heat take to the floor against the New York Knicks, a team that has won two of three games against them so far this online betting season. Despite having their streak come to an end, Miami is still looking to finish with the best record in the NBA, as the real goal comes in to focus as they look to repeat as NBA champions.

The Knicks have already taken two of three from the Heat this season, and will get a huge confidence boost if they can make it three of four. However, New York has struggled on the road so far this season, and Miami is right there with the Denver Nuggets for the best home record in the NBA.

While so many sports betting experts have been quick to criticize the Knicks for being too old, perhaps they haven’t given enough credit to the experience of this team and what it will mean in the playoffs. Jason Kidd is among the smartest guards in the NBA, and on top of his own contributions on the court he has also helped teach on the sidelines. New York also added Kenyon Martin, who has helped at the defensive end of the floor, and is exactly the kind of unselfish player that will sacrifice and work hard to make his teammates better. That will help open up more room for guys like Carmelo Anthony, although missing Tyson Chandler really hurts.

The Heat have a lot left in the tank following their franchise-record win streak. In fact, it looks like they have a new motivation after coming up just short. There is no doubt that Miami is the team to beat in the East, and perhaps this will help motivate them down the stretch. Lebron James is playing at the highest level of his career, and with a healthy Dwayne Wade and a number of solid secondary contributors in Shane Battier, Ray Allen, and Chris Anderson, it is hard to think that anybody will be able to win more than a single game in a full playoff series against Miami.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Knicks do have two wins against Miami this season, but that was a lot earlier in the year and they won’t have Chandler to rely on at both ends of the floor. The Heat may come out even stronger after having their franchise-record streak ended, so look for them to cover at home and send another strong statement that they won’t be stopped.
